A well-rounded volume that is sure to appeal to all readers. Clogan has done well to present transitions of different kinds, not just between historical periods, but also within genres and evolutions of figures and symbols. All essays are impressive in their scholarship. The volume's interdisciplinarity provides exhilarating and rewarding reading.
